Stan and I grew close over the years. Not long after he received tenor at PAFA, he left and spent time between Spain and the US (where both his daughters were living). I believe he moved back to the states after that and hopped back and forth to Spain while helping to raise his grand daughter. With great regret, I changed my old phone number and was off the grid for years. During that pocket, I lost track of him... I have taught at Art Centers and have taught at PAFA since 2005. I also now teach at Fleisher. His early guidance, when I studied under him in the early 90’s, remains with me in my personal work and in my instruction. His ability to break down and articulate the value of the process and abstract ways of seeing have been instrumental to my personal and professional development.
